It's easy to join blindly in the stereotyping of others who are different from us. After 9/11, the Paris attacks and any time there's a terrorist attack, lot's of people negatively stereotype Muslims or people of certain cultures. This is so hurtful to people and reveals our ignorance and immaturity. I don't say this to hurt people, but to help people stop hurting those they stereotype. And it really hurts them badly.
Have you ever been stereotyped?
Have you ever felt misunderstood or misrepresented?
How can we assume the best in others instead of the worst?
God, I am judgemental and afraid. I want to see people as made in your image and loved by you instead of treating them in hurtful ways. Please forgive me and fill me with your love.
